Hunterdon Central strives to engage as many students as possible in activities, clubs and organizations. Our comprehensive extracurricular program is designed to provide opportunities for students to explore their interests and enhance their development beyond the standard curriculum of academic courses. Research has indicated a strong relationship between participation in student activities and academic achievement; we therefore offer over 70 activities, developed to appeal to a wide range of student interests.
Our student activities program supports our District vision of "Performance Excellence for Everyone" by providing opportunities and experiences that develop critical thinking, creative problem solving, character, social and specific skills. We encourage all of our students to take advantage of our activities program by participating in the clubs, activities and organizations that reflect their interests, throughout their time at Hunterdon Central.
On Thursday, Governor Murphy announced that he would not reassess the current school closure until Friday, April 17. Following his lead, we will remain closed and engaged in remote instruction through Thursday, April 9. Spring Break will begin on Friday, April 10, and will run through Friday, April 17, when we hope that we will receive more news from the Governor's Office. During Spring Break, there will be no online instruction for students.
Hunterdon Central has created an electronic submission process for all Local Scholarship applications. We have also extended the submission due date to April 6, 2020, and removed the transcript and letters of recommendation requirements, in order to make it easier for students to submit applications during the school closure.
